WOW! February has been quite a ride. We stayed very busy over the shortest month of the year. We had many good work nights, the first four weeks of the soup kitchen, a HUGE group of students from 3 Circles church come on a Saturday for a D-Now weekend work project, as well as donate close to ten bicycles throughout Baldwin and Mobile County.
God has used the first month of the soup kitchen to lay a lot of ground work and teach us several important lessons for the future. We have had an incredible amount of volunteers already sign up for the upcoming weeks! And this month we will be distributing flyers throughout the community that will let more people know what we are offering each Wednesday night from 6-7pm. Please help us spread this news. A person does not have to be homeless to join us for dinner. If they, or their family, is struggling financially and could use a dinner bill taken off them each week, have them join us. Bring them with you and eat with them. We have a room that has toys so if you have little ones, they will have plenty to stay entertained with
The group of teenagers from 3 Circles were a huge help at the shop. They brought close to 20 students who were all excited to work on the bicycles. Together, they were able to write scripture on close to 10 bikes, assemble 8 bikes, paint 3 bikes, and take apart 3 other bikes! It was such a fun day getting to learn a little about each one of them and seeing the passion they had for others. Thank you so much for joining us and making that day extra special!
As always, we need everyone's help with finding groups to come to the shop. We are hoping to find youth groups, men or women groups(all ages), school groups, team sport groups, or any other organization that would like to bring a group to the shop. If you are part of a group, or if you have a kid/teenager involved in a group activity, please try to talk to the person in charge and see if they would consider bringing the group to the shop to help out with these bikes. If we are able to get just a few groups each month it will help us make incredible progress on these bicycles.
As we continue this new year, we have a few specific needs that we need to meet. With the expansion, our monthly bills will increase and we trust God in providing people who can commit to supporting us monthly. God is able to use anything given, with a willing heart, to grow and continue to bless this ministry and the people in Baldwin County. We are a 501-C 3 organization, so your donations will be tax deductible.
If you are a regular volunteer, thank you so much... please continue to serve with us. If you have not made it, please make time and come see what it is all about. If you have any open dates available, or if you know a group that would like to schedule a work night other than a Tuesday or Thursday, please CONTACT US! We could use the help!
